Moodle

Features

LITS staff help Bryn Mawr faculty, students and staff use Moodle, the College's learning management system (LMS), for courses and organizations. Moodle can be used to quiz, survey, share materials with, and communicate with a closed-membership group, such as a class.

Built-in features such as Choice (a sign-up/polling feature), Assignment, Scheduler, and Gradebook can automate some aspects of course management, and teachers can set up course wikis, discussion forums, blogs and chats to foster communication and collaboration.  

Getting Started

Course "shells" (or empty web sites) are automatically created each semester for courses listed in BIONIC. Instructors of record for a course in BIONIC are given the role of Teacher, and students who enroll in the course through BIONIC are automatically enrolled as "Registered Students" in the Moodle course site. 

Faculty, students and staff can request a Moodle site for organizations and ad-hoc groups at: https://moodle.brynmawr.edu/course/request.php (Moodle log-in required)
